Activities Running (all times 2:45-3:45 unless otherwise noted):

From McCarthy Drama

Drama club is getting started and this year we are presenting Moana Jr. This club is a bit different than other clubs in that you need to be a part of the cast, attend rehearsals two days a week for 2 hours and commit to all three performances.

We have multiple rehearsals each week that end at 4:45, we have lots of parent involvement and sometimes we can’t take everyone that auditions. Performance dates are February 4, 2022—7PM,and February 5, 2022—-2PM & 7 PM. Rehearsals will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Additional rehearsal days will be added in January, and we will rehearse every day for the 2 weeks prior to performances. You-may not be required to come to every rehearsal, your role will determine which ones you need to attend. But you will need to be available on those days from 2:45-4:45. A calendar will be distributed on the first rehearsal, so everyone will know upfront which rehearsals they need to attend. Students will not be able to take the late bus home on rehearsal days-unless you-are specifically scheduled to do so, Please be sure that you can get transportation home at 4:45 PM prior to auditioning. The school production rely heavily on parent support. Parents are asked to volunteer in at least one area of need. A parent will be required-to attend an informational meeting on Thursday, October 21, at 6:45PM in Mrs. Richardson’s classroom. '

Those interested in stage crew, stay tuned!! Information for you will be coming out soon !
